SAC 2019

The Samoyed Association of Canada 2019 National is held at Spruce Meadows, Calgary in conjunction with Alberta Kennel Club show.

We started the week with some photo sessions.

The sammy cart were useful in moving setup and equipments.

Mercedes got her shares to be the poster child this year.



Moka took a break from agility and joined the photo session.


We met our friends Beth, Kayleigh and Jacquire.
They were great help showing our dogs at the national.
We had a good time catching up. 


Mercedes got a warm up run at the all breed show in baby puppy class. 
This was her first official show. 

MeMe took Best Opposite Sex at the National.
Here she was in the photo with her rosette and trophies.

She was very pleased with herself.

Hermione took Best Veteran.

She certainly didn't look her age.


There was a special class at the national - "3-generations"
This was basically a showcase of our breeding program.

Hermione competed in it with her daughter Moka and granddaughter MeMe, and won.

We were honored to win under Judge Michael Yates from Australia.

The youngest of the clan, Mercedes, took Best Baby Puppy.

Mercedes is the 4th generation from Hermione. 

Mercedes also helped Kayleigh compete in Junior handling.



Last but not least, Moka finished the weekend with a "Q" in Master Standard.
As in Murphy's law, the one we videoed was not the one she "Q".


We were so exhausted, so Moka and Morgan helped pulling the wagon back from agility.
They were so proud of themselves that they were able to help.

Agility seminar 2018

This was MeMe's first time at an agility seminar. 
She was at the novice level. 
When she didn't know what to do, she got creative.
Of course, the laughter at the background didn't help.
She thought she was doing a good job entertaining.

She learned a few new skills.
There were more skills that we needed to practice.

Morgan was in the Master class.
It was a lot of skills for her to learn.
She did well on the first day.
She was a bean on the second day.
Her brain must be fried with all the learning.
More practise during the Christmas break.

MeMe's agility fun meet

MeMe did well in her first agility match. 
It was a fun match.
She was too young for a real trial.
I got lost and messed up her first standard run.
However, she got the gamble. 
She was second placed.

And she did a beautiful jumpers run.
She got 2 out of her 3 runs.
I am so proud of her.
I can't wait till she is old enough to go to a real trial next year.
OK.
Back to weave poles training.
